Our method is characterized by providing a prepared environment where each element exists to support the development of the child and provide opportunities to commit to and freely choose interesting work. This results in long periods of concentration and freedom. Concentration skills enable children to live in harmony with others within the small society they belong to (i.e., the classroom.)
We believe that every educator should “follow the child” recognizing the evolutionary needs and characteristics of each age and building a favorable environment, both physical and spiritual to respond to these needs.
Children develop and thrive as they adapt to their environment. Through exploration, they give meaning to the world and construct themselves in relation to the world.
